Matcha is made from Green Tea which is typically shade-grown and harvested in May, and the stems and veins are removed in processing. Then the tea buds and leaves are lightly steamed to prevent fermentation, thus developing the bright green color of the young tea leaves and sweet, vegetal flavor. This process inhibits the leaves from receiving vital nutrients and as a result, more chlorophyll is produced. You will get the sweet, vegetal smell to it; this comes from the amino acid called L-Theanine, again produced by the shade growing process. It is the L-Theanine which gives matcha nice, clean-drinking and green tea taste. The very top should have developing leaves that are soft and supple. This gives a finer texture to higher grades of matcha.
